* ''WesternAnimation/{{WITCH}}'' uses the "evil real family" subversion, with a surprising lack of GenreBlindness--the BigBad is [[GenreSavvy aware of this trope]] and [[DangerouslyGenreSavvy exploits it]].

* The ''{{Temeraire}}'' series has an odd take on this. While the [=titular=] dragon ''is'' considered a valued and unique [[OrganicShip piece of ordinance]] in the British Aerial Corps; when he goes to China he finds out that A) dragons in general are treated as large [=citizens/subjects=] with wings rather than talking warbeasts and B) ''he'' is by rights part of the Imperial Household. While he does return to Britain it is with plans for reform on his mind.

* In ''{{Manga/Berserk}}'', we meet a little girl named Rosine, a bright, imaginative child with a terrible [[AbusiveParents home life.]] Her favorite fairy tale was about an a boy by the name of Pirkaf, who while loved by his parents never fit in amongst humans and eventually came believe he was a elf (due to being in similar appearance) and ran off to live with them. Believing the same about herself Rosine runs off as well but she obviously ignored the ending of the fairy tale. [[spoiler:Pirkaf meets the Elves and learns that he is indeed human; his appearance was caused by the magic used to save him as infant thanks to his parents begging request for help. Upon hearing this Pirkaf runs back home only to find mysterious forest had sprung up overnight, caused by the Elves' anger over no one mentioning how they saved the boy's life, and Pirkaf--now completely alone--wept and wept.]]
** [[spoiler: In the end Rosline finds no Elves and falls in despair only made worse by being found by her abusive father who then starts beating the crap out of her at that moment her [[DespairEventHorizon deepest despair]] activates a [[ArtifactOfDoom certain little egg]]. The summoned Godhand grants her wish to become an elf by transforming her into a fairy-like Apostle in exchange for both of her parents' lives.]] She has since taken to creating a "fairyland" where the children that she kidnaps are turned into her creepy little pseudo-elves in a very twisted version of the ChangelingTale, one that eventually comes crashing down when Guts comes calling.
